    LONG LIVE THE BUSINESS

    It’s becoming abundantly clear that despite the recent economic cycle, the progress technology has made in our lives has marched on undeterred.

    All this growth is fuelling a digital renaissance that is bringing about profound changes in business. More than ever, we’re creating digital assets that are being saved to our computers and corporate servers and we’re sharing more, thanks in large part to the email systems that we’re using to send documents and data to work colleagues and our extended networks across the globe. Massive shifts in technology performance and pricing are lowering the barriers to publishing and changing the way we interact and share information — both in our personal lives as well as business. What’s also clear with this shift to a more open, networked world is that the competitive advantages are tilting more towards small-mid-sized businesses (SMB’s). As more and more organizations move to the Internet as a platform for new services, they are essentially finding ways to get lots of “jobs” done — better, faster, cheaper.

    With this newfound online empowerment, there has never been a better time to be a small-mid sized business. What we are witnessing today is the emergence of a new generation of SMB’s that are embracing the competitive power of technology that was up to this point attainable only for the largest organizations.

    Through new technologies and best practices this new generation of SMB’s are enjoying a more dynamic, more active relationship with their corporate data. In essence they are working with their data assets in a way that gives them added security, productivity and mobility for a competitive edge.

    DATA IS POWER

    One of the most important factors of success in business today is how an organization handles its data. It’s your most important asset.

    Once upon a time, your entire business might have ft on a single PC, but chances are, that isn’t the case today. As your business grows, the amount of information you store grows quickly, especially if you are running database-intensive applications such as large financial spreadsheets, customer lists, patient records, CAD files or inventory systems. You might also need to secure large media files such as photos, videos and presentations.

    The threats to data are countless: From fires and natural disasters, water damage and theft of equipment, to burned out hard drives. These are just a few of the lurking dangers. Certainly, backup hard drives offer a good first line of defence but they often sit right next to the server and face the same risks from the unexpected. So where do you put all those files so they are secure? Think about it: What would happen to your business if you suddenly lost all your files? Would your business even be able to survive? Your business information is one of your business’s most valuable assets — you could even say your information IS your business.

    Of companies that had a major loss of business data, 43% never reopen, 51% close within two years, and only 6% will survive long-term.

    As a small business manager, your world revolves around these important files. As your business moves desktop computers, laptops, servers, and mobile devices around, your business information and data files are continually moving around a host of networks. This all adds up to a need for better solutions to secure and manage your data so that it is easy to organize and access across the organization. What we’re witnessing today is a profound need for new services that can flexibly support and scale with all of this activity across people, devices and locations — activities that are increasingly becoming mobile and spread out across the globe.

    Managing the valuable data that resides across a broad array of devices and drives has become more challenging than ever. What millions of business people are now recognizing is that the traditional systems they are using to protect, access and share their digital files are just not suited to the way they need to conduct business today. As this digital world gets larger and more complex, many small businesses will face these realities:

    Sooner or later all hard drives and devices fail. Every business needs a data backup and recovery plan. New technologies that provide the ability to securely backup and recover critical digital assets are now proving essential to protecting businesses of all sizes. Most industry stats show that almost half (45%) of computer users experience a data loss from computer theft, failure or disaster. For most SMB users, it’s not a question of “if” but “when”!

    Increased business travel and growth in mobile technologies are driving the need for “always there” data. Small businesses need to have access to their digital assets wherever business takes them. The strong growth in mobile technologies is underscoring this trend as smart-phones, netbooks and other portable communications devices are adopted by small business. Millions of small businesses are turning to economical cloud-based technologies that allow

    them to securely access and work with their data remotely over the network, from any location and computer. Up to now, many small businesses were faced with the prospect of bearing the added expense of a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to access data when it resides on another computer at home or the office.

    The growing power of business networks is driving a need to get information moving more efficiently between colleagues, suppliers and partners. To stay competitive, small businesses want the same capabilities to access and share important business information in real-time, as larger enterprises enjoy today. New cloud-based solutions that enable authorized individuals to securely access and share stored files online are yielding huge productivity gains as key information that was once stranded on individual hard drives and servers becomes more accessible to colleagues as well as external partners

    MOVING BEYONG BACKUP

    The Backup Everything business has an edge in three key areas with respect to data: Protection, productivity and mobility.
    It is about having the power to continuously backup, restore, access, and share information online from any location. In a sense, it’s like “activating” your digital assets. Internet-based systems have significantly evolved to enable this more active, engaged relationship that the business needs to have with their data.

    These organizations are more efficiently sharing and collaborating through improved access to information using advanced online “cloud-based” solutions. Solutions that set a new standard by providing SMBs with the same level of service and protection those large enterprises enjoy for their irreplaceable digital assets.

    For instance, many businesses have moved beyond time-consuming methods such as tape drives to secure their business-critical information. Backups have also moved beyond the simplistic concept of just “set it and forget it.” And above all, it’s now well understood that the surest way to protect against data-threatening incidents while maximizing the mobility and productivity of your people is simple: you must save your data off-site with an online backup and remote access solution.

    There are several advantages to using online data backup, recovery and remote access solutions. These include:

    Efficiency and reliability

    Online providers utilize state-of-the-art technology, such as disk-based backup, compression, encryption, data de-duplication, server and storage virtualization, power backup generators, application-specific protection, and more in SAS 70-certifed data centers.

    No Upfront Capital Spend

    Providers use a pay-as-you-go subscription model which significantly reduces the IT procurement and provisioning headaches.

    Constant Monitoring/Reporting

    In addition to security, many providers offer 24/7 monitoring, management, and reporting.

    No Upgrades

    There is no need to worry about upgrades, migrations or technology obsolescence; service providers look after the infrastructure.

    Better Provisioning for Growth
    The online model also provides more predictable management of capacity growth and operational costs.

    Improved Recovery Time
    This is especially true for small sets of files. For a recovery from tape, an operator would need to recall the tape, load it, locate the data and recover the data. Conversely, file recovery from online storage is faster; it doesn’t require physical transport from the offsite location, tape handling or seek time. Files to be recovered are located and streamed over the WAN connection, saving time and eliminating the need for a local and time-consuming tape infrastructure.

    Accessibility
    Online backup may be attractive to organizations that cannot afford the investment and maintenance of a disaster recovery infrastructure — or for those who can, but recognize the greater efficiency and cost savings to be gained by outsourcing. Offsite data copies— accessible from any Internet-connected device or location — provide an added measure of insurance in the event of a more wide-ranging disaster in a geographic region.

    “There is a growing, universal need for secure, flexible cloud-based backup solutions designed specifically for small business environments. Many SMBs are gravitating toward storage-as-a-service to leverage the ease and cost savings, and today the cloud is useful for more than just storage.”
